Reviews

"Pursuing the powerful quest began in The Science of the Dogon, Laird Scranton provides . . . another compulsive read for those wishing to get to the heart of the ancient mysteries." * Andrew Collins, author of Beneath the Pyramids: Egypt's Greatest Secret Uncovered *
"Laird Scranton's groundbreaking new research is a major piece of the puzzle that will forever change the way we view the knowledge of the ancients." * Edward G. Nightingale, author of The Giza Template *
"Looking at many ancient cultures and looking for their influences, The Cosmological Origins of Myth and Symbol proposes many unique ideas and makes for a solidly recommended read." * The Midwest Book Review, December 2010 *
"Following up and synthesizing his last two books, The Science of the Dogon, and Sacred Symbols of the Dogon, Laird Scranton's latest book makes a good case that what we call today the myths and symbols of ancient peoples have not only cosmology as their basis but they originated from one "parent" cosmology. . . most fascinating study. . . " * New Dawn Magazine, May 2011 *
"An inspiring journey through cosmology." * Nexus Magazine, August 2011 *
